This is not a radius question.

Wireless clients running 802.1x will have some software (known as a 
supplicant) built in, which prompts for the username/password and 
execute the EAP traffic exchange to the AP (which is forwarded to the 
radius server by the AP)

I suggest you do some reading on 802.1x on wireless.
